Reaching out to high school counselors

In May, Palmer’s Davenport Campus welcomed 17 counselors from as far away as Puerto Rico and Canada, along with four Quad-City area high school counselors, for a campus tour and the opportunity to meet with Admissions Department staff and other College officials. Palmer worked with AutopistaAmericas and Junior Achievement of the Heartland to coordinate this visit.

“We want as many people as possible to have the experience of being on campus; they learn many things they didn’t know about Palmer and a Palmer education,” said Senior Director of Admissions Karen Eden. “This is especially true with counselors. They can better advise students by relaying their personal experience of the campus culture.”

AutopistaAmericas conducts tours for guidance counselors to more than 500 different colleges and universities each year, and this was the first time that Palmer hosted a visit. In June this group of counselors also visited the Florida Campus.

Because of Palmer’s participation in San Juan Nights for the last three years, the Admissions Department was selected to participate in this “reverse tour” for the counselors. San Juan Nights is a significant recruiting event organized by AutopistaAmericas that attracts the largest group of prospective undergraduate and graduate Latino students in Puerto Rico. Through these annual visits to Puerto Rico, Palmer has provided an opportunity for more than 350 prospective students to consider chiropractic as their future career, and Palmer as the best place to receive their chiropractic education.

Additionally, in June the Davenport Campus Admissions Department hosted 27 high school counselors from institutions throughout Wisconsin. The group learned about chiropractic and clinical education at Palmer, the admissions process, undergraduate opportunities and articulation agreements. They also visited the Academic Health Center before participating in a full campus tour. The counselors’ stop at Palmer was part of a week-long bus tour of colleges throughout Iowa and Wisconsin.
